Weeks after exiting the Big Brother Naija Lockdown house after spending close to three months during the reality TV show, Victoria ‘Vee’ Adeyele has reflected on her time during the contest.

According to her, she didn’t expect she would get to the finals of the reality TV show because she wasn’t everybody’s favourite but she was glad she did because even the so-called strong housemates didn’t get to the finals.

She also revealed that she never expected to be in a relationship in the house as her relationship with Neo kept viewers entertained and cemented her as one of the beloved housemates who made it to the finals.

“I never knew I would ever be in a relationship in the house. Conspiracy, yes… I saw that coming because of the kind of person I am. But a relationship, no. I was fresh out of a relationship and the damage had been done, so I wanted to stay away from the opposite sex. But the fact that I gave Neo a chance says that he clearly means something to me,” Vee noted.
